Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

the-man-from-u-n-c-l-e-movie-poster1,810 words

Readers of this website are aware of the fact that I am an aficionado of the ’60s superspy series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. But I awaited Guy Ritchie’s “reimagining” of U.N.C.L.E. with some trepidation. A big screen adaptation of the series has been in the works for around 40 years. And an execrable TV movie was actually made in 1983. The theatrical film project has changed hands many times, and innumerable scripts have been written. After Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino announced that The Man From U.N.C.L.E. would be his next project (I reacted to this news with mixed feelings). Read more …

9 David McCallum and Robert Vaughn in an early episodeAct Three: “The Mush from U.N.C.L.E.”

Eventually someone pointed out that there is a law in New York State prohibiting the exploitation of “U.N.” or “United Nations” for commercial purposes, so “U.N.C.L.E.” had to be given a meaning. Read more …

I Am a World-Historical Individual

Franz von Stuck, "The Spirit of Victory"

Franz von Stuck, The Spirit of Victory

I realized the other night that I cannot remember a time in my life when I did not believe that I would make history. I have always had the unshakeable conviction that I am a man of destiny. (To be exact: a man of destiny, adventure, and romance.) In part, I have my mother to thank for this. Every so often, starting when I was very, very young, she would lean down, fix me with her dark brown eyes and say things like “You’re different,” “You’re special,” Read more …

F. Roger Devlin
Sexual Utopia in Power: The Feminist Revolt Against Civilization
San Francisco: Counter-Currents, 2015

Once when William James was huffing laughing gas, he thought he’d had an important revelation and wrote it down on a scrap of paper. Later he read it and was appalled to find that it was, in his view, just nonsense:

Better Call Saul!

better-call-saul-better-call-saul-poster2,136 words

Readers of this site are aware of my great love for Breaking Bad (see here and here). Just about every like-minded man I know who saw the series found the story of Walter White, high school chemistry teacher turned drug king pin, to be as inspirational as I did. Weirdly inspirational, of course. But these are weird times. Walt’s story was not intended to be a glorification of crime (though, well, it does kind of turn out to be). It’s the story of a man becoming a man; becoming what he is. It’s the televisual, inspirational equivalent of Fight ClubRead more …

Living in Truth: A Yuletide Homily

471px-Champaigne_Philippe_de_-_Saint_Augustin_-_1645-1650

Philippe de Champaigne, “Saint Augustin,” 1645-1650

2,587 words

The key problem of our age is disconnection from truth. This takes several distinct forms. The first, and most obvious, is the prevalence of lies. As everyone knows, modern, western civilization is founded upon lies about human nature, culture, and history. The most significant of these – underlying, in one form of another, most of the rest – is the equality lie; the myth of human equality, which is the chief myth of our age. (“Myth,” as most of my readers know, can have a positive or a negative connotation, as there are salutary myths; here, obviously, I am using the term in its purely negative sense.)  Read more …
